John from http://www.growingyourgreens.com/ gives you a tour of a vertical aquaponics farm that is using sustainable bamboo towers to maximize production in a commercial greenhouse to grow vegetables and fish year round in Salt Lake City, Utah. In this episode, John visits Dachnick Domes and Aquaponics, that provides commercial aquaponics solutions and shares with you four independent aquaponics systems that can grow food anywhere. First, John will provide you an overview of the Vertical Aquaponics system sharing with you more about why the company was founded and how they will release a all-in-one aquaponics greenhouse dome kit that will be powered by the sun. Next, John will provide an overview of the aquaponics system in this greenhouse,, and then take you on a tour of many of the different areas of the aquaponics system so you can learn how an aquaponics system works and how specifically they are using their growing space to maximize their production of the vegetable crops they are growing. You will learn about the sustainable bamboo towers that are used to grow in the vertical space above the gravel and float beds that allow them to get 10x more production than without using the vertical space. John will then share with you the basics of an aquaponics system and the nutrient rich water flows through the system to feed the various vegetables growing in the different areas including: gravel beds, float beds, bamboo towers and soil based containers. You will see for yourself how food is being grown in all these different areas and some tips of specific crops that can be grown under the different situations. You will also learn two in-line water conditioners that are being used that may help to increase the health of the vegetables and fish. John will then take you […]

    Check out Bright Agrotech in Laramie, WY.   They are all about Vertical aquaponics and creators of the Zip Grow tower.  Maybe you could do a video about their facilities and products.

    Another great video and tour.

    In your opinion, what are the pros/cons of using true vertical vs stacked horizontal [shelves], for indoor growing.

    They use both at this farm with a greenhouse, which seems to work great, but I am still interested in your thoughts.

    Zoning in some cities won't let you put a dome in the backyard.

    that magnetic "restructure" device you mentioned sounds like a lot of hooey.

    Hi John, I really appreciate your videos. On your vertical aquaponics video I was curious to see the inside of the bamboo also viewing how the water was delivered into the bamboo and at what rate. Also the additional additive " iron " when you visited Houston aquaponics did they add iron also? Thanks also at what stage are these additives added?

  • Edible Gardening 10 months ago

    Hi John. What is your honest opinion? Is the future of food production going to be aquaponics or soil based growing? I have watched many of your videos and it seems like you prefer growing in soil.

  • Alex Beads 10 months ago

    Hey John, I really appreciate your videos and your movement. I was wondering however, why don't you allow the owners of these places to speak in your videos? As someone who works on a commercial system I'd like to hear in more detail why the owners/planners did what they did. That's just my take. Don't mean to sound too negative, I really think you are doing great things.
